From our principal, Stephanie Cannon:
SEHS and the other 4j District schools are initiating new attendance policies. It is important that parents are aware of and understand these new guidelines and the potential penalties for unexcused absences. Instructional time is critical to students’ academic progress so it is important that they maintain good attendance in each of their classes.
We know there are legitimate reasons to miss class on occasion. Parents and guardians must call or email the SEHS attendance office to excuse your student for those absences. A key change in our policy is that the call or email must occur within two school days of the absence. If we don’t receive that information within two days, your student’s absence will be recorded as unexcused.
The administrators and counselors are regularly monitoring all students’ attendance. Once a student has three unexcused period absences within a month’s time, a notice is sent home and possibly a consequence issued. Eight unexcused period absences within a month’s time will result in a ‘live’ phone call home, and very likely a meeting with the student, their parent/guardian, and an administrator. A school consequence may occur, and additionally, the student may be in danger of truancy.
If we determine a student are truant (unexcused for 8 half days or four full days) we will file a truancy report with the district and a truancy officer will go to the student’s home. Parents/guardians could receive a truancy citation of $160.00.
Finally, teachers may award only partial credit for work in their classes if a student has five or more unexcused absences during a trimester.
These policies are not only necessary steps for complying with the legal requirements related to non-attendance; they help our school identify students who need additional support to attend class. We know that good attendance is a vital component of the students’ educational achievement, and our goal is to support all of our students’ progress in school.
